Time capsule sealed in space shuttle exhibit
[i]NASA's Florida visitor center has dedicated a time capsule filled with memorabilia related to the 30-year space shuttle program. Not to be opened until 2061 — 50 years after the last shuttle mission — the time capsule was sealed in the wall of the building that displays the spacecraft that completed that historic final flight.
...a metal plaque featuring a silhouette of an orbiter and the date 2061 marks where the time capsule is installed. "A time capsule created by the space shuttle team honoring the 30-year space shuttle program is sealed behind this wall. It will be unveiled on July 21, 2061, to honor the 50th anniversary of the space shuttle program's final mission [STS-135]."[/i]
